A Lot of Talent and Imagination Went Into This Attraction

All you can eat ice cream followed by the experience of creating ice cream was a bit too much for me, but just right for the kids. Clean and interesting facility, nice trip, especially for a rainy day.

Ben and Mrs Too have often driven past this attraction so clearly visible from U.S. 30 between York and Lancaster. We finally stopped to visit on this last trip and must say it is quite a show. There are no end of things to see and do, including a wide variety of interactive features. It must be stated that, understandably,... More

A really impressive experience truly. Educational interactive opportunities for kids and adults. When I went there more adults than kids there. Obviously it appeals to everyone. And I've never had fresher ice cream in my life

It's a small place. Downstairs is the shop to buy souvenirs. Upstairs is more for learning facts about Turkey Hill brand. They give out unlimited samples of ice cream, about a scoop each time and samples of iced tea about 3 ounces. You walk around and read facts on a wall, there's a interactive video game for the kids and... More

For kids, this is the bomb! We took our 2 and 4 year old grandkids and they had a blast. This is a self guided fun experience that will hold the kids attention for about 2 hours. Ice cream is included as well as iced tea samples. There will be opportunities to learn about the way ice cream is made... More

First off, their 60-to-90-minutes-to-experience-everything suggestion is a joke! My 2-year old would have willingly spent 6 hours there. Needless to say, we had to drag her unwillingly out after 2.5 hours. There is a lot for little kids to do. Most of the exhibits seem to be tailored toward kids, so get ready to set aside a chunk of your... More

Self guided tour was good. All the samples of ice cream that you want. Also had some good Turkey Hill ice tea, apple cider, lemonade, etc. We went to the lab which was also great! It is a pint of ice cream plus many toppings and syrups to add. WONDERFUL!!

I have been to similar dairy experiences and this one is very good with many activities...but it is far too expensive for what it is. The cost is nearly $10 each for unlimited samples of ice team and tea. The clincher is that they only have a handful of flavors available for you to sample. There is some interactive experiences...

Happy Day, My apologies that THE do not meet your expectations for our Experience. Turkey Hill works extremely hard to offer a fabulous product. During the summer THE has 8 different flavors to sample and 16 in the off season. If you are ever in the area stop in and ask for me and we can go sample some ice... More

So we visited as a family with young kids. Everyone had a good time playing with the interactive screens and playing the few games. And the "freezer" was a hit with my little boy. We did The Lab. Now the lab is not run very well I think. They give you a base ice cream to flavor and add toppings... More
